There are great advantages to meeting your partner later in life. We’re more realistic, less selfish, better equipped to be good partners. We better understand what matters (and what doesn’t) when it comes to our happiness. Continue reading
Something I’ve been thinking about… A significant problem I see in the coaching world–and coaching marketing–is the presumption of a level playing field. To assume that the challenges facing a tall white guy and a short black woman are the same is… laughable. And unfair. Which is not to say that tall guys don’t face and overcome challenges. But it’s still not a level playing field. We know from countless studies that women, people of color, short people, differently-abled people experience negative bias from banks, businesses, the justice system, health care, strangers, and on and on. Tons of obstacles invisible … Continue reading
Oh lord! 6 planets are “retrograde,” meaning they appear, from where we stand on earth,
to be going backwards. They’re not going backwards (obviously) but they are closer to us during retrograde periods, which means we feel them more intensely.
This may be true or it may be total malarky.
I like Astrology because it gives me an easy scapegoat–the planets–when I’m feeling challenged, and a built in expiration date. This too shall pass, baby!

Yes, we are more than our bodies and there is (in my opinion/personal experience) an eternal component to us that is pure consciousness and power, beyond harm, without limitation. But while we’re here and IN BODIES, the material world matters. That’s our job for this lifetime. Hunger and suffering matter. Nobody evolves without engaging in the challenges of being a wounded, flawed, vulnerable sentient being. Don’t look away. Learn from the pain. Do your best to solve problems in this world, in the time you have here. That is the highest spiritual calling.
Another coach wanted to know why we “kill” the monster… I received an email this morning that was really interesting from another coach in Europe asking why I tell people they need to kill their money monster. This was a funny email to me and It’s a coaching question, so I can’t write and answer coaching questions and private email sto non clients because if I did that, I would burn out! I thought instead I would answer it in a video so that she and everybody else who has this question–because she’s not the only one–so I can talk … Continue reading
In 2012, after yet another heartbreak (45 years of romantic failures, folks), I was so lonely and despairing that I made plans for my own suicide. I wrote a note, bought a book on how to do it, hired an attorney to help me create my will, and I set a date. Continue reading
